Donnie’s P90X Before and After Story
“When I finished high school, I was in the best shape of my life only to look better and be more fit going into college at Georgia State University. I had a fast metabolism and because of that, I was not aware at all that WHAT I was eating was slowly taking its toll on my body. I was “wiry” and was at 8% body fat thinking life was great. After college, I met my future wife Monica and, as most people know, marriage tends to slow down that metabolism. So I slowly gained weight. I didn’t notice it at first because I was still pretty skinny but as time went on, I got bigger and bigger. It was a very slow process so it didn’t strike me as a “problem” until one day my brother and I were out to lunch together after not seeing each other for months. His first comment to me after all this time was, “Hey bro, …. wow, your face is fat.”. Now we laugh at that today but what he didn’t know was that was a turning point in my life. I lived my whole life in shape and skinny and now all of a sudden, I am being called “fat” by my only brother. This was devastating to me to say the least. I made a commitment then to get back in shape not only to look good, but to feel good as well.
At the time that I found out about P90X, I was big into Facebook and YouTube, posting funny pictures and comments here and there but had started to notice that a great deal of my friends were talking about this P90X. I had never heard of it and, at that time, had never seen the commercials for P90X so I just shrugged it off as “just another fad”. More and more people started talking about it until one day, a pretty close friend of mine mentioned HE was using it to get into shape so I contacted him to find out what all of the fuss was about. He talked about how it was changing him on the outside as well as giving him more confidence at work and at home so I decided to search this out on YouTube. I came across Josh Spencer’s P90X transformation video and was not only AMAZED at how ridiculously good looking he was (ok you can edit that out Josh…lol) …….was not only amazed at his transformation but was pumped up as well to start my own transformation. I had about the same goals as Josh (to lose about 25 pounds) so I knew if he could do this, I could do this so I contacted Josh, he led me through the purchase of the P90X system and IT WAS ON!
It’s now been about a month and a half since that fateful day and, with Josh’s help, I have incorporated the P90X recovery drink into my routine to replenish my body with the nutrients it needs to recover quickly from my workouts as well as replenish the nutrients lost during my workouts. Most importantly in my eyes though is my Shakeology. Shakeology has been absolutely amazing for my wife and I to provide us with tremendous energy throughout the day as well as all of the nutrients that we would NEVER be able to get on our own with a regular meal plan. Not only have I lost the initial 25 pounds but I went from 25% body fat back down to 15% and still dropping. All due to Shakeology, P90X, it’s nutrition plan and my Coach’s encouragement and guidance throughout the process. I am not stopping here though! I plan on starting P90X2 at the first of the year and proving to myself once more that if I set my mind to it, I can do it with hard work, dedication and the right tools…. the tools of Beachbody.”
